Laura is in America at the moment, maybe some extra training?

I thought she would be in Australia with her family for Christmas...

Re: Laura Robson: The Silver Medal Years 2012-

I'm happy about the award, despite I wouldn't have given it to her, for being crap for most of the year. I hope next year she will be consistent during the whole season.

Yep. It's one of those things where you can see why they gave it to her, but at the same time there's a very convincing case for not doing so too. It should have been Stevens, from the people on the list.

As for next year, consistency would be good, and I've got hope for it. If she can stay injury free and utilise her groundies like she did at USO she's going to cause some upsets. A consistent serve would be the icing on the cake, but I wouldn't really call it a weapon at this stage.

EDIT: Something that's true but hasn't been mentioned, Laura's first serve win percentage (68.7%) this year was the tenth best in the WTA.
